700 km's Update
« on: March 18, 2018, 11:48:42 PM »
Just clocked up my first 700 k's here's my thoughts on the X

Overall the bike is great and suits my need for a smaller and lighter bike, I think the bikes main weakness is the front suspension. I've adjusted the pre-load but I just can't get it right, to much preload and the front end is to harsh on reducing the preload the front end is to soft and gives me no confidence in fast corners. The rear shock I can tolerate but I think I might invest in some RR fork springs.

Some of the mods I have made:
Motor Werx Mirror brackets, are great I can now see past my arms
California Scientific Windshield cuts wind noise very happy with that
Seat Concepts is an improvement over the standard seat
Fuel exhaust well made looks great sounds great

Hi mrichi - I'm pretty confident the RR fork kit will give you the improvement you're looking for at the front end...

It's not just springs you get, but also new damper-rods plus actual shim valves too - which dramatically improves the damping characteristics; while the springs themselves are linear, so you get a smooth transition all the way though the travel range (rather than the marked step in rate you get with the OEM front springs).
